Pink Roses

Last night at Young Women in Excellence Marilyn, Ashley and Abby were awarded with there medallion and to say thank you to us leaders, they gave us a each a rose. "Not a white rose or a red rose, a pink rose. Because pink is just cool!" quoting Marilyn. We love all the Young Women and are proud of what they accomplish. We had a nice evening and I am thankful for the rose.
I used John Paul's suggestion of turning the lens around. I had a hard time staying still.

Some Rhyme and Reason

Seeing Clara grow up I have been thinking a lot about children's perception. I have been trying to depict not only the awkwardness of a world scaled for twice their size but the spectacle and color of what the world holds. I see a little bit of the vulnerability that such small people endure and a cleanness that suggests to me naivete. Still I find that the images are hopeful, confidant and exciting. For example, notice that Clara looks particularly tiny in the "Tea Cup" photo.

Unknown Plants

I took these photos today on our way to the playground.
